Carnival 2 Year Old Birthday Party

Our Carnival Food Menu

Sausage Strata (basically like egg bake)
Super Cheesy Potatoes
Mini Pasties 
Animal Crackers
Cracker Jacks
The Automatic Candy Machine

Water Shooter - knock the golf ball off the tee with a water soaker gun

Duck Pond Racing - blow a rubber duck across the pond (rubber tub) with a straw and race your friend

Bean Bag Toss

Ring Toss - with root beer bottles and plastic little girl bracelets

Since we had a range of kids from 2-10 we had to find a way to make the games fair for everyone.
So each childs "PRIZE" or favor bag was marked with a number of tickets required for "purchase" 

The number of tickets was the child's age multiplied by 3...So if you were 2 you needed 6 tickets for your prize and if you were 10 you would need 30!

A simple roll of carnival tickets from Amazon Prime was just what we needed!

The Prizes:
Magic Tree House Books for >4 years old

Clifford Carnival Book for <4 years old


Circus Sticker Books

Clown Noses

Face Painters
A few expert teenage babysitters of ours did some beautiful face painting for all the kids!
